Healthy baked oatmeal is always a hit in my house. It’s like a muffin (and like a pudding).
I talk a lot about oats and have featured two overnight recipes: Crockpot Oats with Old Fashioned Oats and Overnight Oats with Chia Seeds.
This is probably a recipe you will make ahead of time. I don’t know many people who have time before work to bake for their family. You can freeze it in squares and reheat it in the microwave or simply leave the tray in the refrigerator for the next week. Hot breakfast in 30 seconds!!
- ridiculously easy to make
- convenient for morning rush
- comforting and satisfying
It’s like a little love in a bowl and the healthy baked oatmeal is customizable. You can add any fruit you have in the kitchen. I used some frozen sliced peaches and blueberries because I’m too lazy to cut anything up. You could use apples, mangoes, strawberries, pears, etc.
All you have to do is mix it, bake it, and store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to eat it. You can also cut it into squares and freeze it for individual servings. Freezes well and can be microwaved from frozen.
This recipe has half the sugar of most other baked oatmeal recipes. I changed it because if it’s not sweet enough for you, it’s easy to add a little sweetener to the finished product.
You can also make it without added maple syrup or sugar. You don’t need it if you are trying to reduce your added sugar intake. Yo
My son likes to add a little milk and maple syrup to his “microwaved” baked oatmeal. It feels good to give him a hot breakfast when I’m literally struggling to get him out the door.
I add a little peanut butter or plain yogurt because I like a tastier version.
This recipe can be made gluten-free if you use certified gluten-free oats. Many oats are processed in the same machines as wheat, so be careful when purchasing them.
Do you make baked oatmeal? What do you put in it?
